Lost Winterspire: Into the Void
War of the Hrothgar
Nearly a decade prior to the arrival of the adventurers to the Moon Hills Inn, the city of Frosthold waged a war of conquest across Winterspire known as the War of the Hrothgar. The self-proclaimed Hrothgar, King of Frosthold and King of the Illuskans, sought to unite his people under one banner. This was a feat no thane had dared before.
While Hailstead and Stoneheim were easy conquests for the might of Frosthold, both the coastal cities of Luskan and the hold of Winterhavn bitterly opposed the Hrothgar’s armies. Most of the conflict occurred within the Boglands, where King Hrothgar founded the fort town of Westfurt.
Despite stalwart resistance from Winterhavn’s armies, King Hrothgar was able to break the siege of Westfurt with the help of the Thunder Clerics of Hrothgar Tower. His army marched into the hold of Winterhavn, who’s thane reluctantly capitulated, ending the War of the Hrothgar.
